GlobalFest has been a Mother of God School tradition since 2009. This year at GlobalFest 2022, it will be a simplified version to include food from all over the world, bar, games, live music, and FUN while retaining the character of this beloved tradition.

This year at GlobalFest we will not have class performances, auctions, etc. While we do expect the full version will to return in Spring 2023, we felt that it was essential for our school community to celebrate together and work to restore a sense of normalcy. We have missed this school tradition for two years now and wanted to re-introduce GlobalFest to our school community. It will be a simplified version while retaining the character of this beloved tradition. While we will be selling tickets for the food, drinks, and games, the fundraising will be drastically de-emphasized. All proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit our students through our need-based tuition assistance program.
